This popular graf spot in an abandoned downtown NYC lot has been heating up with new ups recently like “DaysFares” above. There a “Pigs Crew” tag embedded in the initial “D,” but we haven’t seen their tags before. This is a massive up, and this location at East 1st St. and 2nd Avenue, in the East Village, has the kind of space required for large scale graf and street art. The lot is on the corner of a block that was one of the last undeveloped stretches of Lower Manhattan and full of aerosol art and paste-ups. Now, several massive luxury condo buildings have sprung up on the block. It’s only a matter of time before this spot is occupied by a new real estate development and huge tags like “DaysFares” are hidden behind brick and mortar.
